Shrine of Remembrance Agreement 2008 ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ 2010

The first ever Union Collective Agreement has been lodged to cover employees at Melbourne s Shrine of Remembrance and CPSU has been able to negotiate a number of key improvements to pay and conditions.

Key Features of the Agreement:

? Average 6% increase on translation to classifications in the new Agreement
? Additional 3% pay rise in 2009, and 2.75% in 2010
? Overtime payments and annual leave loading to be paid on an employee s classification rather than being capped at Band 2.1
? Allowances to reflect Victorian Public Service standards
? Improved parental leave ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ increase to 12 weeks paid adoption leave, and the ability to take paid parental leave at half pay (24 weeks)

Dispute Resolution Procedure - Disputes that can t be resolved at the workplace level may be referred to the Industrial Relations Commission for conciliation and, if necessary, arbitration now.

Part-time/ Casual Employment - Custodians engaged prior to 30 November 2003, may either receive all Agreement provisions or a 20% loading in lieu of some entitlements.

Shrine employees had previously been part time and casual and few in number and employed on individual Common law contracts.

With the opening of the new Education Centre in Nov 2005, which is built in the undercroft of the Shrine, the numbers of staff have grown to about 35 with many now full time to cater for the increasing demands from schools, community groups and the general public.
